"Everreach: Project Eden" Announced for PC, Xbox One and PS4

Dive into an epic sci-fi action RPG on a breathtaking planet

15 July 2019 After three years in development, Headup is proud to finally reveal Ede Tarsoly’s new masterpiece Everreach: Project Eden, a fast-paced, story-driven 3rd person action RPG set on the visually stunning Planet Eden. You won’t have to wait long as Everreach will release on PC and Xbox One this September, while the PlayStation®4 version will follow a bit later this year.

Ede decided to think big, and for the first time he turned his former one-man  studio Elder Games into a team of five people, plus over a dozen of external freelancers. Together they created a massive 3rd person adventure packed with tactical ground combat, high-speed vehicular warfare and a compelling level and skill system.

In Everreach: Project Eden you play as Nora Harwood, member of Everreach’s Security Division, on a mission to secure the colonization process of Eden and investigate mysterious incidents. Explore this vast alien world and descend into the planet’s depths to discover the ancient secrets of a long-forgotten civilization. Packed with intense shooter action, and a compelling level and skill system, Everreach immerses you in its intriguing story and diversified gameplay.

In addition to his new team, Ede received some help from a group of talented external contributors. For example, Planet Eden's beautiful vistas were co-designed by Mai-Anh Tran, an artist who worked on sci-fi movies such as WarCraft and Star Trek: Beyond. Furthermore, there is Michelle Clough who helped create the game’s enthralling story. She was the former narrative QA and game writer for the Mass Effect trilogy. And even one of the voice actors, D.C. Douglas ("Legion" in Mass Effect 2 and "Wesker" in Resident Evil) adds perfectly to the atmosphere of Everreach: Project Eden.

Without further ado, here is the Reveal Trailer to the game:

You play as Nora Harwood, member of Everreach’s Security Division, on a mission to secure the colonization process of Eden and investigate mysterious incidents.

Everreach: Project Eden will be release on PC (Steam Page) and Xbox One in September, the version for PlayStation®4 will follow a bit later this year.

Colt Canyon Developer Shoot Out

#1 - The Game's Soundtrack

25 June 2019

Howdy, fellow gunslingers! Great pleasure to welcome you to our first Developer Shoot Out on our pixel art rogue-lite shooter Colt Canyon. Within the next weeks and months we will be sharing tons of news on the steps we are taking to bring Colt Canyon to life. You will also learn how it became this action-packed Wild West adventure full of dangers and atmosperic sceneries.

Let's talk about the music: To make the Western experience as great as possible and allow the players to immerse into a story full of flying bullets, bloodthirsty enemies and dangerous wildlife you need an atmospheric soundtrack that'll  support the story and action on screen - no matter if it's a movie or a game.

Listen to a sample of the soundtrack here

Colt Canyon is no exception. The game is designed in a minimalistic and pixelated style with color, mood and vegetation differing depending on the various regions the players are shooting their way through - and it's the same for the soundtrack.

Luigi-Maria Rapisarda, composer of Colt Canyon's soundtrack: "Endless deserts, smoking colts, saloons in which the whiskey flows, bandits that wanna chase you down and the burning sun in the sky combined with typical instruments like harmonica, fiddle or an old bar-piano - the Colt Canyon soundtrack is inspired by the works of Ennio Morricone on the great Spaghetti Western movies of the 60s and 70s." 

Colt Canyon
will be released later this year for PC, Xbox One, PlayStation®4 and Nintendo Switch.

  • Character stats have been rebalanced
  • Enemy stats have been rebalanced
  • Combat encounters have been decreased in Neighborhoods
  • The rate at which the Geist-o-meter rises has been decreased and allows more exploration

  • Bullion Chips: A new loot drop from enemies featuring Gold, Silver, and Copper bullion chips adds variety to combat encounters. These can be traded to merchants for hellion (money).

  • Steam Cloud Saving: Has been implemented
  • Various typo fixes.
  • Various quest fixes.

And that is just the beginning. The team is hard at work seeking to implement long-term QOL changes as well.

A Word from the Developer

When we launched Vambrace: Cold Soul, the community was swift in letting us know what we got right, wrong, and could have implemented better. As a small 4-man team, we took this feedback to heart and were equally swift with updates. It was the first time we were able to benefit from mass feedback – of which in-house QA is simply not a substitute.
Over the course of a week, we released a new patch on an almost daily basis. These changes have made Vambrace an entirely new experience for most of our community members. Please check the new features. If you believe that any of them could have drastically improved your experience, we invite you to revisit the game. As always, we are deeply appreciative of your time, and honest feedback! - T.L. Riven
